We are more than willing to have your parts blasted via our parent company, B&W Heat Treating. They specialize in both Aluminum Oxide media and well as Steel Shot.
Aluminum Oxide is harder than other commonly used blasting materials, aluminum oxide grit powder penetrates and cuts even the hardest metals and sintered carbide. Approximately 50% lighter than metallic media, aluminum oxide abrasive grain has twice as many particles per pound. The fast-cutting action minimizes damage to thin materials by eliminating surface stresses caused by heavier, slower cutting media. Virgin, brown aluminum oxide contains less than 1.5% free silica and is therefore safer to use than sand. The grit size is consistent and cuts much faster than sand, leaving a smoother surface.
